Feelings are important in kindergarten. We talk about our feelings when solving problems with friends. We speak of the feelings favorite characters have in the books we read and at writing time we try to show and tell how we are feeling in our stories. This chart is a tool we use to help us remember that we can have many different kinds of feelings.
Favorite Book About Feelings
I LOVE this book In My Heart A Book of Feelings by Jo Witke. There are so many teaching possibilities with this book. Each page shares different feeling words and SHOWS how the little girl feels. My class noticed that each page has a color that connects with the feeling too. The illustrations in this book are beautiful.
